Judging Criteria & FAQs
ANZ ‘On Your Team’ recipients are selected by a panel of judges who take the following into consideration when selecting recipients:
- Information provided: Your application must clearly outline what difference having ANZ on your team will make, how it will help you, your team, school, club or community and explain why you’re a worthy recipient. Highlighting exactly the difference this help will make to you, your team, school, club or community will help judges assess the merit of your application.
- Impact: The judges are looking for applications where the delivery will have a lasting impact or legacy within a community, school or team or to an individual, fan or player.
- Supporting material: Including images and videos in your application is advised in support of your entry. Making the effort to tell your story and explain why you need ANZ’s help, demonstrates your enthusiasm and commitment to making it happen.
